obama administration did, that is called governing. >> yeah. let's go to david. why would he use words like this. this is the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. this was unscripted. this is the pure romney. >> chris, i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark and when i saw it i couldn't believe it. maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying to it play up to that crowd, that's what they wanted to hear. now when we hear him talk about voters he didn't just say he was bought off, that obama won their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign of big ideas. so they are the moochers, they are victims who will pay them the most. in the end what happens, mitt romney portrays himself as a victim of the victims. so just confirms all the worst impressions from the 47% rant and now you have republicans running away from him and basically saying hey don't let the car elevator door hit you on the way out. >> let me go to one thoughtful conservative. who i usually agree with. he's a smart guy. he writes for "the weekly standard." it seems to me that he has a pr

petroleum institute said last week we had implicit promises from the obama administration that we would approve this pipeline. we're going back to d.c. on sunday to thousands of us to remind the white house we haven't forgotten. >> i want to talk about the pipeline. i do think there's good news on the horizon and some kind of breakup in some of the political stalemate that we've seen right after this break. into their work, their name on the door, and their heart into their community. small business saturday is a day to show our support. a day to shop at stores owned by our friends and neighbors. and do our part for the businesses that do so much for us. on november 24th, let's get out and shop small. >>> the keystone pipeline is a pipeline that would bring tar sands oil from canada down into the u.s. and tar sands oil is particularly toxic. carbon intensive stuff, right? it's ot not the easy light sweet crude. >> disgusting i think is the technical term. >> it's disgusting stuff but it's valuable. that's why they're pulling it out and bring it down. it turned into a political football.

mers nace armyings. >> what we've seen under the obama administration is a real move away from what they call human intelligence collection on the ground. and away from trying to put prisoners in places like guantanemo or in secret cia black sites. basically the whole policy has just become a killing machine, a paramilitarized approach to counterterrorism. the career of david petraeus, particularly over the past ten years, really puts a fine point on that. petraeus was a key figure next banding u.s. war zones to countries like yemen and somalia. when he became the director of the cia you saw the real increase in number of drone strikes outside of afghanistan and pakistan and into more of these countries. >> is the down side of that? if you are using technology can that serve as well as the human intelligence? >> right. what i'm hearing from intelligence professionals is in a place like yemen, i've been there several times, when you do a drone strike and you kill people that have nothing to do with terrorism and you kill innocent civilians you're actually creating more enemies than y

really what he thinks that government comes down to. because the things he was describing that the obama administration did, that is called governing. >> yeah. i think -- same question to you, david, why would he use words like this? i think it's the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. 47% was unscripted. this was unscripted. this could be the pure romney. >> you know, chris, i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark. when i saw it, i couldn't believe it, but i thought maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying it to play up to that crowd. he knew that's what they wanted to hear. but now when we hear how he talks about voters, he didn't just say, yes, they were bought off that, obama won their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign of big ideas, but these other people out there, they don't care about it. they're just in it for themselves, so they are the moochers, they are victims who are looking at who will pay them the most. in the end what happens, mitt romney portrays himself as a victim of the victims. it just confirms all the worst impressi

seminar that's being held at the state capitol. >> at that forum republican leaders warned the obama administration it's using mind control to manipulate all of us. we show the forum, that was all caught on camera. >> how psyched was the guy at the cbs station in atlanta who was asked to make that graphic for that segment, right? okay, we're going to need a graphic that has president obama on it. okay. and since he's president, maybe throw in an american flag. okay. what's the theme? it's about mind control. so give us something with president obama and a flag and the words "mind control" and whatever other imagery might get across the mind control idea at a glance. amazing. the story was based on this video shot by the group better georgia inside a four-hour-long seminar conducted by the republican caucus in the georgia state senate. republicans are the majority in there and the state senate president convened this four-hour event for republican senators to learn about how president obama was using cold war era mind control techniques to trick americans into turning ourselves over t

of susan rice, among others, and the obama administration, and so, harry reid sent a letter yesterday and told john mccain he is not going to get the special committee he wanted. but i think the administration simply is going to have to watch republicans spend their energy on this. david petraeus tried to make the argument, defending susan rice, that she was repeating talking points, that she'd been given for the reason that the administration did not want to alert terrorist groups that we knew that they were behind the attack. i'm not sure that that's going to quiet the criticism. we're just going to have to see how long it plays out. >> you saw the meeting yesterday with the president and congressional leaders on the fiscal cliff. how confident are you that a compromise will be reached in a timely fashion? >> pretty confident, actually, alex. you know, i thought the outcome of that meeting was about as positive as you could hope to see from a bipartisan meeting of congressional leaders with the president of the united states, all four leaders, pelosi, mcconnell, reid, boehner, spoke
